I so love the inspiration picture for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge #260.  Fall is here!

Here is my card for the challenge.

Orchid Opulence was the only exact color that I had, so a little mixing and matching came in handy.  Copics made a pretty good “Baked Brown Sugar” as seen on the wheelbarrow.  (Well, at least it matched the color sample in the SU Catty.  lol)

So remember you don’t have to use the exact colors.  Just use what you have that are close to the challenge colors.  For some wonderful inspiration, you’ll want to see what all of the Throwdown Designers have created:
